Today,

Went to work this morning at around 6-something this
morning. It was butt-kicking cold, and I had no idea how
far this place was, so I thought that I was going to be
late...then I find that the gas guage was almost on E, so I
had to stop and put some gas in the tank.

Turned out that I got there 10 minutes early...

When I got home around 11:30-something, I was informed that
my wife's side of the family and their respective
offsprings were going to come visit in 30 minutes...Cool!
I guess??

Then my dad called, wanted me to help him upgrade his
computer, and so he came over and we ordered an upgrade cpu
online, and then I sent him to Circuit City to buy some
memory.

Then the rest of our company left, and everyone was tired,
except for me, and so I used the time to tinker with the
computer my dad left for me and so I set up the jumpers and
all to take in the new processor once it arrived.

Meanwhile, since I was in the mood, I worked on the
computer I had set up for the boys, and put in the
processor that I just pulled out of my dad's motherboard,
and also the memory, and so upgraded their computer.

I still have to do the cutting and splicing with the
network cable, but once that's done, I could start
accessing the computers from anywhere in the house and use
it to share an internet connection...cool... I would also
like to install Linux onto one other hard drive that I
have, so I can have that to play with when I'm also in
the 'mood'...:)

Oh well, three more days till Christmas...Merry
Christmas...!
